Diana Rudolph's Tarpon Box

Diana Rudolph is the subject of this month’s “What’s In Your Fly Box?” feature on MidCurrent. We’ve written about her before (see “Subsurface With Diana Rudolph“), but not until recently did we have the privilege of seeing the contents of her personal tarpon fly box.
Rudolph, who owns the current 16# tippet record and was the first woman to win the prestigious Don Hawley tournament, loves tarpon. And she loves tying with chicken feathers. We got more than a few good ideas from her choices for clear-water and backcountry fishing (the Mullet Toads sent us on a frenzied gray yarn hunt), and we’re guessing you will too. Wonder what is the most current and effective selection of tarpon flies for difficult fish? This is as good a look as you’re likely to get.
By the way, if you happen to be anywhere near the Florida east coast, Rudolph will be the speaker at tonight’s meeting of the Florida Sport Fishing Association at 7:30 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Center off State Road 520 on Merritt Island.
